Tenchoushimamura Shuzo Co.,LtdWakayama
- During the Meiji Era, it was sold under such brand names as "Sekai-oh" and "Misasagiku". In the early Taisho period (1912-1926), when His Imperial Highness Hatohiko Asakamiya was assigned to the 61st Regiment in Wakayama and resided at the Shimamura family's villa, the sake was officially named "Tencho" by Asakamiya. For almost half a century, we are the only sake brewery in Wakayama Prefecture and one of the few in Japan that has offered "Tencho" sake to the Emperor under special permission. The words "Jungin" and "Kumanoji" on the label were written by Mr. Aimasa Irie, who was the chief chamberlain to the Emperor Showa.
